Performing the Poetic.
PRESENTED AT MALTHOUSE THEATRE
IN ASSOCIATION WITH MELBOURNE WRITERS FESTIVAL
CURATED & CREATED BY KATE DAVIS & EMMA VALENTE
THE RABBLE ask some of Australia’s best known female performers and theatre makers to reinvent poems that have been typically ghettoised as ‘angsty’. The result: a visceral, sublime and orphic showcase ignited by a passion for the poetic. An evening that includes poetry by: Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, Kathy Acker, Anne Sexton and Christina Rossetti.
